Jerry, what happened?

A weepy Jerry Lewis went to the tote board for the final tally and an emotional finale to his 45th annual MDA telethon shortly before 3:30 pm as scheduled when-- something happened. Jerry was heard to say "That's not the final--" when they cut to commercial with no explanation.

One reason for the blackout experience in LA and possibly elsewhere could be the final tote of $58.9 million, which, despite massive corporate support, failed to surpass of even match last year's $60.5 million, let alone the record $65 million in 2008.

Did Jerry freak out at the low figure?

Stay tuned...
